Flying Disc Ranch has been selling dates at PAFM since 2002. The ranch grows dates in southern California, near Thermal. Robert Lower started the business after he traveled to Africa 17 years ago, fell in love with the area, and brought back dates.
Flying Disc produces a wide range of date varieties and date products. Favorites are the large, pillowy Medjhool variety – delicious eaten plain, with pistachios and coffee, or in date bars, and Flying Disc Ranch also produces a date syrup not often seen in stores and markets. The dates are grown biodynamically, an enhanced form of organic farming developed by Rudolf Steiner in the early part of the 20th century.
